Virginia Design Student Carves iPhone Devotion into a Pedestal

Virginia Commonwealth University design student Kyle Buckner had an assignment “to create a pedestal to hold [a] ‘precious object’.”

We hope he received an A+ for the hand-carved wooden stand he created for his iPhone. Complete with Home Screen icon “leafs” that connect to a rod that spins inside the stand’s main arm, Buckner’s piece is made completely of wood, save for bits of plexiglass which connect each icon leaf to its “branch” on the stand.

    Absolutely fantastic, the guy clearly has talent to not only spot a great idea but make it as well!

    Whoa, new design here!

    This pedestal would be nifty to see in JUMBO size, in the middle of a city park or front of a corporate building.

    Beautiful work – I bet Apple would love a large scale work like this in front of their New York store.
